1.                  SOLD__________________________________Consignment ~ DS ~ Shipley, Kansas City, MO WWII Knuckle Knife.  Knife is in excellent condition overall with light spotting on the right side of the blade.  Double edge blade is 7 ¼” long.  Brass and leather handle.  Shipley knives are extremely hard to find and this one is even more rare having been a battlefield pick up by a Japanese soldier.  The Japanese soldier in turn lost it himself and it was picked up again by an American soldier.  See the Japanese writing on the blade.  I have seen this a couple of other times in the past 40 years and the writing is usually the soldier’s name.  No telling how long the Japanese soldier owned it, but he did have it long enough to scratch off the Shipley info on the original sheath.  This is truly one of those “if this knife could talk” pieces.  Original sheath is in excellent condition as well.  NOTE: NO PAYPAL ON THIS ITEM.

3.                  US 1918 LF&C Knuckle Knife.  6 ½” blade retains most of its finish, except along the spine and where it went in and out of the original scabbard.  Handle, knuckle point, and pommel are all in the original condition with nothing having been cut off or ground down.  Replacement scabbard is made of harness leather and appears to have had a canteen snap keeper strap added as it doesn’t quite match the color or age of the scabbard.  Pistol belt hanger appears added as well.  A VERY NICE piece with some very unique touches.  The scabbard itself is solid with very small surface cracks at the throat; see the pictures.  NOTE:  NO PAYPAL ON THIS ITEM.

12.              Vietnam Era Puma Bowie Knife.  Circa 1970.  It was told to me that this knife was carried by a door gunner in the 1st Air Cav. based out of AnKhe.  Very good plus condition with some spotting on both sides but no pitting that I can see.  Mostly just spotting.  Very sharp but all honest wear. The stud for hold down strap is missing.  The strap and scabbard are very soft and supple.  You can’t really see how the stud pulled out, but it’s not there.  The stag handles are solid with no cracks or chips.  A very nice piece overall.

The following items are being sold by John Gibson  jrg@woh.rr.com

"Note: I Am Always Interested In Buying Your Collection"

 

1.  SOLD------------------------------------------WWII Case V-42----The full blade is 7 5/16" long. I see no sharpening but there is some spotting on the back side. There is the very slightest of bend at the tip-it would not show up in a picture. The original blue finish has thinned---especially on the back side. The handle is clean and solid. The butt cap is pinned. It comes with the original scabbard that is complete. There are 3 marks at the throat---I do not know what those are from. The snap is correct and works fine. The line that you see in the belt loop area is where they spliced together the leather to continue the belt loop---it is original and was done at the factory. The leather is soft and supple. Ref: Cole III pg 48---Nice Original V-42 and Scabbard------$ 3750.00

83.  FAKE F/S--The following information is being presented in the hope that other collectors will not get burnt:
Fake 2nd Pattern F/S--Made to be a Free French  Variation--The 6 7/8" blade is blackened, under the black is what appears to be a copper plating or coating. The guard has a small Broad Arrow on the top side. The blackened knurled grip has a large Cross  imbedded in the knurling. The Cross is aprox 1/2" tall and 3/8" wide.  After talking with a couple friends, John Fischer and Tom Parker and re-reading a section of Ron Flook's book, I have come to the conclusion that this thing is bogus.
This additional information came from fellow collector Kerry Gordon.  (thanks Kerry)
I just thought that you might like to know that you weren't the only one ever caught with one of these - not only do I have the French version but I also have one with the Belgian Rampant Lion stamped into the hilt.

The real give away with these is that the blade tang doesn't run all the way through the pommel nut, there's about two threads empty at the end of the nut.  The other thing is that the brass pommel nuts are painted with gloss black paint rather than blackened.

Someone spent a lot of time and effort on these, the blades really are tinned under the blackening and the hilts are blackened brass that is reasonable well checkered.
